How to Solve Netbeans Error “No tracked remote branch specified for local branch-name”

Short answer:
As of Git 1.7.0:
git branch --set-upstream foo upstream/foo

Long Answer:
Netbeans 7.3 introduce three new feature for git remote

  • Fetch from Upstream
  • Pull From Upstream
  • Push to Upstream

But whenever I tried to use this commands, it gave me the error
“No tracked remote branch specified for local branch-name”

After digging around for a while, I found the solution.
git branch --set-upstream branch-name remote-name/remote-branch-name
