After rebooting server typing df -h shows my home2 partition missing. How do I get it back to show up? How to unmount/remount?

Check to see if /home2 appears in the file /etc/fstab. If not that is why it didn't appear. It is /etc/fstab that is used to decide what to mount on boot.

To mount from command line you can just type:

mount -t <fstype> <device> /home2

Where
fstype is the filesystem type (the default used in most Linux is ext3)
device is the device name such as a partition name, a software raid device or a logical volume name (e.g. /dev/sda7, /dev/md3, /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol08)

Examining your current mounts from /etc/fstab may help you determine which one is missing.

If you provide the output of df -h we may be able to give you a hint as to where to look for the proper device.
