How to export parental control settings

Configure all desired parental controls for a user then run these commands as root:

To export the parental controls plist:

dscl . -mcxexport /Users/keith -o parental_controls.plist

 

To import the parental controls plist to another computer or user:

dscl . -mcximport /Users/craig parental_controls.plist

 

NOTE :  If you’re using tab auto completion when running the above commands, it will add a trailing slash “ / “ at the end of the user name.  For example:  /Users/keith/

 

You need to remove that trailing slash for the command to work.  It will fail if the trailing slash is in the command.
