Identify the locations that contain content that can be discovered. Is it just SharePoint, Exchange and Lync, or file shares as well? Does
every SharePoint site need to be discoverable?
Consider the permissions that you have to grant to eDiscovery users. eDiscovery users need access to all discoverable content, both in
SharePoint and Exchange (and file shares if required)
Consider the storage location capacity to hold the litigation content. If content is not changed much, not a lot of additional storage is
required, but if content is changed, a copy of that content is preserved.
Several performance considerations of running eDiscovery queries. Adding more sources increases the number and complexity of queries.
Complex queries (with more operators: AND, OR, NEAR) have more impact on performance.
