Exchange 2010 Public Folders when used with DAG...

So, I have a basic two server DAG setup with each server being at a different site. When the first site goes down, I can bring the passive database online and get users connected to it. However, I can't figure out how to bring Public Folders back online. I ran some commands that were suppose to replicate the Public folders to the other system. However, once the first system is down, no one can get to the public folders anymore. How does this typically work?

The Outlook clients will need to restart Outlook to reconnect to the PF's.

Exchange should provide a list of the PF replicas to Outlook so the restart should provide the reconnection

You will need to change the public folder database on the properties of the mailbox database.
While you can have multiple public folder databases and replicate the traffic, it is a manual configuration change to allow public folders to be available again. It will take about 15 minutes before the clients are abel to access it again, or you will have to restart the information store service and restart Outlook.

Simon, in the event of a failure, I need to manually change the public folder database for the active mailbox? Am I clear on that?

That is correct.
After failing the database over, the public folder database needs to be changed to the one on the now live server.
