What are you trying to achieve?

The umask change will take affect the next time any rc script is run.

i getting advice to not use 022. but change to 027. but the advice can't explain much.

so the functions file does not need to be restart or reload? means i the script will read by themself?

I raise this question because the security script said that my linux S02systats umask is not found. so when i refer to systats umask, it show me to the /etc/init.d/functions umask. please make me clear...thanks

I really don't know if you're going to run into issues changing the umask from 022 to 027 (perhaps not).

/etc/init.d/functions is referenced by any rc script that has the following line:

. /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions
