    Where can I find the NTDS.dit file?

    Where can I find the NTDS.dit file? I know it's in %SystemRoot%\System32\NTDS.dit, or something very similar. But where can I find it?

    Is that machine a domain controller?

    If it's a domain controller it should be %systemroot%\ntds\ntds.dit.

    It took me about 2 min. searching google to find the answer.
