Heyas,

If I have Availability Group setup with 2 nodes, how do I check which node is the active one and which is passive via the GUI?

Also are their SQL queries for this?

Thank you.

Try

SELECT
   AGC.name [AvailabilityGroup],RCS.replica_server_name [SQL cluster node name], ARS.role_desc [Replica Role] , AGL.dns_name [Listener Name]
FROM
 sys.availability_groups_cluster agc INNER JOIN sys.dm_hadr_availability_replica_cluster_states rcs
   ON RCS.group_id = AGC.group_id INNER JOIN sys.dm_hadr_availability_replica_states ars
   ON  ARS.replica_id = RCS.replica_id
  INNER JOIN sys.availability_group_listeners AS AGL
   ON AGL.group_id = ARS.group_id
WHERE
 ARS.role_desc = 'PRIMARY'
