Are you sure you mean SCR and not CCR? SCR is always passive.

For CCR try:
Cluster group
That will show you which node has the 'Cluster Group' (Quorum, file share witness etc) and it will also show which node has the clustered exchange group (Exchange Virtual server)

It is SCR but I need to know which one is passive, is it the active server or the standby?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Your SCR target is passive.

"We can also use the Get-StorageGroupCopyStatus cmdlet to see the current information of our SCR, in order to get only the SCR information we can use the parameter –StandbyMachine and the SCR Target server name, as shown in Figure 06."

The above is from here:
