BPDU Guard Role

If I understand BPDU Guard is configured on Edge Ports along with Portfast.
Reading this Cisco artcile:
https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/datacenter/nexus5000/sw/configuration/guide/cli/CLIConfigurationGuide/SpanningEnhanced.html
It does not say the Portfast has to be configured for BPDU Guard to have effect.

It also states:
you can configure BPDU Guard at the interface level regardless of the typ of the configuration.. what I understand from that, you can even configure it if the interface is a Trunk.

Any Expert to shade some lights on this topic?

Thank you

When BPDU is configured Globally on the switch,  then one of the Ports has received BPDU, will the switch  put all the ports on the switch into Err-Disabled stated or just the port that has received BPDU ?
