How can I distinguish the active ksk dnssec

Richard Frank
Last Modified: 2017-04-18
I use windows 2012r2 as DNS server.
After signing a domain 4 DNS keys are generated
2 ksk and 2 zsk
I have to publish one of the ksk with the nameprovider for the chain of trust.
but I don't understand which one, because except the public key the files are identical. So how can I find which key is active and which one is the roll over(standby) key?
When visiting dnsviz.com I can see that I have published the wrong key, see picture.
