Exchange 2010 public folder HA

Still trying to get all the kinks worked out of my Exchange 2010 upgrade.  I have my CAS array working, I have my DAG built and the database copies on both of my MBX servers.  When I try to test switchover it tells me that it can't because the public folders database is not configured for replication.  I have read that the public folder database can be part of the dag but you have to have a separate copy on the other MBX server and set up replication.  When I created a public folder on server #2 it still gives me the same error.  How to you configure the public folders for HA?

No specific HA configuration with Public folder database,
Just Add a replica for EACH public folder (user or system) on EACH dag member

You can use included powershell Shell script named AddReplicaToPFRecursive.ps1
to do this. See for example: http://www.theemailadmin.com/2010/05/8-useful-public-folder-management-scripts-in-exchange-server-2010/

Not exactly what I was looking for, but it pushed me in the right direction so replicate my public folders.
