I am looking at the Windows 2012 Server and sql server 2012 is installed on this server..and I am confused about which node is active? when I look at the Failover Cluster manager,I see the Cluster name and Current host server there ;see attached file

 there are two nodes;


 Cluster Name: SQL12CLU
 Current Host name: SQL12CLUB

 but when I look at the Roles in Failover Cluster management, SQL12CLUA seems to be owner node so why are they different? I think, the server in the Owner Role should be Active node,which is SQL12CLUA but on the other hand, I see the SQL12CLUB as a Current host name.. so is there any way about how to find the active node in FCM?
