Can you setup two Exchnage 2013 Servers with a DAG and have the automatically failover when one server goes down?

I have two Exchange 2013 Servers on the same network, with an Eyewitness server and a DAG.

Is it possible to have it where when one server goes down, the other continues to service all email users.  Right now, when I down one Exchange server the Outlook clients are disconnected if their mailbox is on that server.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The DAG does not provide CAS high availability, only the database.
You need a load balancer in front of the servers - a Kemp or Jetnexus are the most cost effective solutions. The clients then point to the Load Balancer and if a server goes down, it manages the client redirection.
