I have asp.net mvc application with custom error pages:

<customErrors mode="On" defaultRedirect="Error/SomethingGoingWrong">
  <error statusCode="500" redirect="Error/SomethingGoingWrong" />
  <error statusCode="404" redirect="Error/PageNotFound" />
</customErrors>

Cusom error pages are working fine. But I want to log error trace throw nlog and trying something in error action:

public class ErrorController : Controller
{
    public ActionResult Error()
    {
        var ex = Server.GetLastError();
        logger.Fatal(ex, $"{ex?.Message}");
        ......
    }
}

But always getting ex=null.

I think, you can use redirectMode="ResponseRewrite" as 

<customErrors mode="On" defaultRedirect="Error/SomethingGoingWrong" redirectMode="ResponseRewrite">
  <error statusCode="500" redirect="Error/SomethingGoingWrong" />
  <error statusCode="404" redirect="Error/PageNotFound" />
</customErrors>

We use Global.aspx.cs to log all kind error as:

void Application_Error(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    var _logger = LogManager.GetCurrentClassLogger();
    var ex = HttpContext.Current.Server.GetLastError();
    _logger.Fatal(ex, $"{ex?.Message}");
}
