BPDU guard and filter is generally deployed on access ports not trunk ports connecting one switch to another.

I would configure BPDUguard but not BPDUfilter.

I want to be safeguarded, if ANY server in HP Virtual connect is configured with bridging or there is any loop in HP VC at startup (happened before), i want to protect the rest of my datacenter infrastructure from L2 loops, so i shutdown the links towards the enclosure.

If you configure bpdufilter, you will not be able to detect BPDU packets on the other interface.
