Hi all, when setting up my lan switches, can anyone give me the recommended best practices for setup, ie bpdu guard, broadcast supression etc ?

All depends on your network and network policies.

Be carefull when using storm control, if set too high can cause major problems.

Personally, I don't use broadcast surpresion as we invest more heavilly in IDS/IPS and firewall systems.

can you show me what this command for global portfast looks like, how do you make sure its not used on the uplinks in this case ?
