To clarify, the OP didn't specify what DNS software they were using, only
the OS (Windows 2016).

If using Microsoft DNS, then as Mark pointed out, Microsoft has not
implemented regular shared-key TSIG. They have, however, implemented
GSS-TSIG, which, I believe, can be configured on the BIND side (although
I've never personally done that).

If using BIND on Windows, then, as Chuck pointed out, configuration is no
different than any other BIND-to-BIND TSIG setup.
