What happen if I have both ENABLED spanning-tree BPDUFILTER and BPBDUGUARD on a specific port?

If you place a switch-port into this configuration:

spanning-tree bpdufilter enable
spanning-tree bpduguard enable

bpdufilter will take precedence and bpdugard will not be functional.

Cisco documentaion here confims this with this statement

"You can override the setting of the no spanning-tree portfast bpdufilter default global configuration command by using the spanning-tree bpdufilter enable interface configuration command."
