Since a-p HA have the same config between them (almost) and stand-by is stand-by doing nothing other than syncing config and, optionally sessions, with the master so no need to keep watching at, when you get in with one of those interface IPs, you can see only the master. But under System->HA, you can see interface status, etc. of all units in the cluster.
Unless it goes out-of-sync, you don't need to check anything on the stand-by(s). Then when you need it due to sync problems, almost all you need to do on the stand-by is some diag commands in CLI, which you can get to it via its console. But if you have to remotely get in and you don't have a terminal server, you can configure an interface under "set ha-mgmt-interfaces" in "config sys ha" section then you can have a unique IP on each unit in a subnet so that you can reach it individually either with GUI or CLI over SSH.
