Hello,
How to find out very quickly what is used for high availability in Exchange 2007 environment?
I need to know which CCR is currently used in 2007 environment.
What commands should I run and where to look to quickly know how to failover and what is currently used?

Also, I see that copy status for the storage group says that it is failed. Please let me know

You can use the following cmdlets to help accomplish your scenario...

Determine what HA Mailbox server is running...
Get-MailboxServer -Identity <database name> | fl
check the ClusterStorageType value
•If the value is Disabled, the Exchange Server 2007 server is a non-clustered mailbox server.
•If the value is NonShared, the Exchange Server 2007 cluster is a CCR environment.
•If the value is Shared, the Exchange Server 2007 cluster is a single copy cluster.

Get-ClusteredMailboxServerStatus
Shows what server currently holds the active mailbox database copy (quorum etc)

Move-ClusteredMailboxServer -Identity:NodeA -TargetMachine:NodeB
The command above moves the mailbox database to another active server in the cluster

Also see the below link for additional details...
