Did you read the Network Access section of the installation guide?

Access the database via the Terminal application.

Create the sample database:
>db2sampl

Start it up (assuming db2inst1 is the db2 user):
>sudo -u db2inst1 db2start

Test it:
>db2 connect to SAMPLE
>db2 list tables

YMMV depending on your OS X version. Seems that people have had difficulties installing on recent versions such Mavericks or Yosemite.

I'm reading this ,

when I tried to create an instance:   sudo ./db2icrt -u db2inst1 db2inst1
I got an error:  " The host name "server.local" is invalid. Specify a valid host name"

besides do you need to have a special db2 command interpreter to call "db2 connect" ?  Where is this command available ?

Try typing this in Terminal (as root):
echo "127.0.0.1 $HOSTNAME" >>/etc/hosts

You should be able to use the db2 connect command from the Terminal command line.
