Exchange 2013 Witness Server File Share Creation

I'm going to ask what might be a very simplistic question but I can't seem to find a clear answer.  When it comes to the folder that is to be used for the DAG File Share Witness in Exchange 2013, do you have to create the folder ahead of time and point the DAG to it {I recall doing that in 2010} or will the creation of the DAG itself create the folder and share it as the Microsoft documentation seems to suggest? I have created a DAG and set a Witness server and provided a path for the Witness share.  I have not yet added any servers to the DAG.  When I got the the Witness server, there has not been a folder created.  I was thinking that perhaps servers need to be added to the DAG before the folder would be created but I am unsure. Any answers are appreciated.

Yes, You have to add server to DAG first. Because witness server works in a DAG.
