I am in the process of putting up a wooden fence (standard 6 foot high, three 8 foot sections), books call for the post to be in the ground ½ of the fence height. Lucky me, the soil is real rocky and has remnants of old concrete from previous fences. Digging with gas driven auger was an ordeal, and I got the holes 2 ft deep. If I poured concrete around all posts, not just the end ones, could I get away with just 2 ft holes? Thanks.

If your fence is 6 foot high post and rail, perhaps you might get away with it. But if it's standard 6 foot high stockade, then it essentially becomes a sail in a breeze or wind. It wouldn't be long before a storm knocked it over.

See, as you depicted that there is a concrete on the ground, So don't think that it would be for you to get 2ft holes but even if you tried to do so then it may happen that you may damage your fence?? Isn't??
The better solution to this can be you call some repairer they are actual experts they can give you a complete and beautiful look like I had installed near to my used office furniture and looks like this
