Can not start instances with srvctl, only sqlplus

I must be missing something very obvious here ... I can not start the instances on our 2 node RAC with srvctl (all other cluster-managed services/listeners/etc. come up fine), but if I use sqlplus + startup, all is well.

Oracle Standard Edition on Linux x86-64
Instances: bopa1 + bopa2
Nodes: bls0114 + bls0115

The error I get is:
bls0115:ora.bopa.bopa2.inst:SQL*Plus: Release - Production on Sun Oct 21 16:12:59 2012
bls0115:ora.bopa.bopa2.inst:Copyright (c) 1982, 2008, Oracle. All rights reserved.
bls0115:ora.bopa.bopa2.inst:Enter user-name: Connected to an idle instance.
bls0115:ora.bopa.bopa2.inst:SQL> ORA-00119: invalid specification for system parameter REMOTE_LISTENER
bls0115:ora.bopa.bopa2.inst:ORA-00132: syntax error or unresolved network name 'LISTENERS_BOPA'

bls0115:ora.bopa.bopa2.inst:SQL> Disconnected
CRS-0215: Could not start resource 'ora.bopa.bopa2.inst'.
Looking at lsnrctl status, I only see LISTENER_hostname on the nodes, does it have something to do with that?

The cluster has been newly installed and is running fine otherwise.
