This error persisted till I rebooted my mac and tried to start the containers using kitematic dashboad, not sure what is co-relation here. It looks like though the containers were running the “docker.local” was not getting resolved or was not pingable.

docker-machine ip will not work with docker for mac, as it is not configured as a docker machine. You can use docker.local as the address, or docker port will show you where to connect.
