VPN broke my SharePoint

When I navigated to my SharePoint site, I saw this message:
This operation can be performed only on a computer that is joined to a server farm by users who have permissions in SQL Server to read from the configuration database. To connect this server to the server farm, use the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard, located on the Start menu in Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products.
The reason for this was, I installed Cisco VPN on my server in order to be able to access internal network and work with TFS (in 192.168.x.x range).
Unfortunately, SQL Server is on another private network (10.x.x.x range). And as result, it could not be found by SharePoint server.

Disconnecting from VPN solved my problem.
