An explicit proof of the existence of nontrivial vacua in the pure supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories with a higher orthogonal (Formula presented) (Formula presented) or the (Formula presented) gauge group defined on a 3-torus with periodic boundary conditions is given. Extra vacuum states are separated by an energy barrier from the perturbative vacuum (Formula presented) and its gauge copies.
