Deny read access on Event & Tasks tab

I need to deny read/view access to Events tab in Vi Client to users, can it be done ?

I see the EventManager object has the following permission set...so how can i deny System.View on EventManager to a specific user/role.

 EventManager  	 description  	 System.View  
	                 latestEvent  	 System.View  
                       	 maxCollector  	 System.View  

But there's no such option to set permissions on EventManager object itself..

PS C:\> $em | gm

Try asking at the vCenter community but I don't think this is possible.

If you create a role without System.View you won't be able to see children of folders, so I don't think you'll be able to see anything.
