When you add a listener with the same port as an existing listener the command will fail even though the listeners are on different networks:

$ srvctl status listener
PRCN-2044 : No listener exists
# Add a listener on network 1
$ srvctl add listener -l LISTENER_<TEST1> -k 1 -p 1525
# Start this listener
$ srvctl start LISTENER -l LISTENER_<TEST1>
# add a listener on network 2
$ srvctl add listener -l LISTENER_<TEST2> -k 2 -p 1525
PRCN-2061 : Failed to add listener ora.LISTENER_<TEST2>.lsnr
PRCN-2065 : Port(s) 1525 are not available on the nodes given
PRCN-2035 : Port 1525 is not available on node(s) or virtual host(s): <NODE1>
