    No, you can't.


    Aruba 2930F supports VSF (also known as a Frontplane Stacking FPS technology), Aruba 2930M doesn't.


    Aruba 2930M supports Backplane Stacking (BPS) techonology (by using dedicated Hardware Stacking Modules and Stacking Cables), Aruba 2930F doesn't.


    VSF can be used within Aruba 2930F Switches...exactly like BPS can be used within Aruba 2930M Switches, you can't stacking them because FPS and BPS use different approaches.
