Some time ago I added a domain name to my Google Apps for Domains account. I forgot whether or not I added it as an alias or as an independent domain name. I cannot see in my list of domains anything to designate it as one or the other (see screenshot):


How do I know how this domain is configured?

Google differentiates the two type of domain for you. If the domain is a separate domain, the status would just read "Active". However, if the domain is an alias of the primary domain, the status will read "Domain alias for example.com". So in the screenshot you provided, the domain you are pointing to is a separate domain.
